Looking for a likeness

Winter approaches outside my study window and into my mind. Across the sea, Gaza is exploding and Australia continues to be governed by aliens. For relief I look to the art works hanging in a corner of our writing room: Jim Wigley’s ink drawing of 3 women and child returning to camp with fish, Noel Counihan’s linocut, ‘Laughing Christ’ and Brandy Tjungurrayi’s painting of the “football game”. All three works are part of my story.
